Making a passive income through investing money in FTSE 100 shares may seem like a risky move to many people. The index has experienced a market crash this year and still trades over 20% down on its 2020 starting price. However, over the long run, the stock market could offer a generous and growing income return.By contrast, NS&I Premium Bonds and Income Bonds may provide less risk in the short run. But their low returns and the prospect of low interest rates could realistically mean that investors experience a loss of spending power in the coming years.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Making a passive income with FTSE 100 sharesOf course, making a passive income with FTSE 100 shares has become much more difficult this year. Many large-cap shares have decided to pause or even cancel their dividend payouts in response to weaker operating conditions. Therefore, there is far less choice when it comes to making an income from shares.That said, many FTSE 100 companies continue to pay dividends. This is evidenced by the index’s dividend yield of 4.7%. As such, an investor who buys a diverse range of companies can expect to generate a yield that is significantly higher than that offered by other assets, including NS&I Premium Bonds and Income Bonds.Furthermore, the prospects for a growing passive income from FTSE 100 shares appear to be relatively bright. The economy’s short-term outlook may be tough, but it has always recovered from its declines to post positive GDP growth. This is likely to mean that FTSE 100 companies experience improving operating conditions that allow them to pay higher dividends over the long run. This may mean that an investor’s income increases at a faster pace than inflation.Low interest rates, potential loss of spending powerBy contrast, making a passive income from NS&I Premium Bonds and Income Bonds may be a tough task. Certainly, they offer no risk of loss. While this may immediately appeal to investors after the FTSE 100’s recent decline, lower risk may also mean lower returns. In fact, it is difficult to obtain a return that is significantly higher than inflation from any cash or income bond-related product.Interest rates may remain at low levels for a prolonged period of time. Policymakers could prioritise economic growth over inflation, which may mean that savers experience a loss of spending power. This could mean that their capital gradually goes less far in terms of the goods and services it can buy.Therefore, while FTSE 100 shares offer a riskier option compared to NS&I Premium Bonds and Income Bonds, their significantly higher passive income prospects may make them more attractive. Through building a diverse portfolio of shares, an investor can limit risk and still benefit from a relatively high income return over the long run. See all posts by Peter Stephens

Taken from a Jan. 2, 2014, audio column at prisonradio.org.Lynne StewartBy the time you read this, Lynne Stewart, New York’s people’s lawyer, will be home, sleeping in her own bed, in the company of her beloved husband, Ralph Poynter, and their children and grandchildren.It has been a long and tortured haul — from judge to judge, from bias to hatred (with no small amount of jealousy, we might add) — to punish Stewart, not because of her words in the press, but because of her advocacy on behalf of the poor, the oppressed, the dispossessed, the targeted and the powerless.She was the lawyer you got if you were in trouble, broke or both.She and Ralph toiled in New York for years to make sure people had at least a shot when they entered the icy courtrooms of New York, the anterooms of prisons and perdition.Lynne is ill, yes; but her spirit is fine. She knows that her family — and the extended family of activists near and far — love her.As she rests and recuperates with her family, we unite to hope that this season is but the first of many, many, many more.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
By Gary Truitt – Dec 3, 2015 SHARE Facebook Twitter Val DolciniU.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Val Dolcini today announced that producers who chose coverage from the safety net programs established by the 2014 Farm Bill, known as the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) or the Price Loss Coverage (PLC) programs, can begin visiting FSA county offices starting Dec. 7, 2015, to sign contracts to enroll in coverage for 2016. The enrollment period will continue until Aug. 1, 2016.“The choice between ARC and PLC is completed and remains in effect through 2018, but producers must still enroll their farm by signing a contract each year to receive coverage,” said Dolcini.Producers are encouraged to contact their local FSA office to schedule an appointment to enroll. If a farm is not enrolled during the 2016 enrollment period, producers on that farm will not be eligible for financial assistance from the ARC or PLC programs should crop prices or farm revenues fall below the historical price or revenue benchmarks established by the program.The two programs were authorized by the 2014 Farm Bill and offer a safety net to agricultural producers when there is a substantial drop in prices or revenues for covered commodities. Covered commodities include barley, canola, large and small chickpeas, corn, crambe, flaxseed, grain sorghum, lentils, mustard seed, oats, peanuts, dry peas, rapeseed, long grain rice, medium grain rice (which includes short grain and sweet rice), safflower seed, sesame, soybeans, sunflower seed and wheat. Upland cotton is no longer a covered commodity. For more details regarding these programs, go to www.fsa.usda.gov/arc-plc.For more information, producers are encouraged to visit their local FSA office. To find a local FSA office, visithttps://offices.usda.gov.The ARC and PLC programs were made possible by the 2014 Farm Bill, which builds on historic economic gains in rural America over the past six years, while achieving meaningful reform and billions of dollars in savings for taxpayers. Since enactment, USDA has made significant progress to implement each provision of this critical legislation, including providing disaster relief to farmers and ranchers; strengthening risk management tools; expanding access to rural credit; funding critical research; establishing innovative public-private conservation partnerships; developing new markets for rural-made products; and investing in infrastructure, housing and community facilities to help improve quality of life in rural America.

Illinois has a biometric privacy law that allows people to sue if companies did not get consent before receiving the consumer data.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Aravind Kumar on going through the report submitted by the committee noted that “The data published by the State Government of the number of cases reported every day will show that the cases in the entire State and in particular, the city of Bengaluru are on the rise. We, therefore, expected that the State Level Committee which is appointed as per the directions of the Apex Court will play a very proactive role. The report submitted by the Member Secretary shows that the State Level Committee has not discharged its duties.” The court rejected the report submitted by the committee which suggested that in terms of providing amenities and facilities, there are no deficiencies in any of the COVID-19 hospitals in the State. The court noted “This tall claim made by the State Level Committee cannot be accepted for the simple reason that there is nothing placed on record that a large number of hospitals in all the districts were visited with a view to ascertain whether adequate facilities are available.” The bench reminded the government that “Right to lead a healthy life is a part of the fundamental rights guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. A period of six months has gone by after the first case of COVID-19 was detected in the State of Karnataka. The situation is that the cases are on steady rise and in fact, in some areas, the same are multiplying. In the context of the fundamental right under Article 21 of the Constitution of India, it is the duty of the State Government to ensure that periodic checks are made in all the COVID hospitals recognized by the State Government. If the State Level Committee and the District Level Committees are not able to perform their duties, it is for the State Government to modify the constitution of the said Committees so that they become very active.” Accordingly it directed the government to immediately take a call on activating the State Level Committee and the District Level Committees for ensuring that they perform their duties. To come out with a programme or scheme which will ensure that availability of adequate infrastructure and facilities in all the private COVID hospitals in the State is monitored regularly. The government has to come with a concrete solution on this aspect by September 28. Oxygen Availability in hospitals. The court has also directed the state government to respond on the status of availability of adequate oxygen in the State and the issue of escalation of price of the oxygen cylinders. The direction was issued after advocate Shridhar Prahu informed the court that during the last few days, there is a shortage of supply of oxygen in the State and as a result, the prices of oxygen cylinders have skyrocketed. He urged that some steps will have to be taken for price control inasmuch as if the cost of oxygen increases, the cost of treatment of COVID-19 will also increase. Payment of Wages to Pourakarmikas Court has directed the state government to ensure that 27 Urban local bodies (ULBs) pay full wages up-to-date to the pourakarmikas within a maximum period of 15 days. If any of the ULBs fail to pay wages by this timeline, the State Government will have to step-in and ensure that full wages are paid to the pourakarmikas. In regards to insurance amount to be paid to family members of the deceased Pourakarmikas the court said “It is recorded that 11 deaths of pourakarmikas have been reported in 9 ULBs across the State and instructions have been issued to the concerned ULBs to forthwith pay Rs.30 Lakhs compensation to the families of the deceased. The State Government shall ensure that the amount of Rs.30 Lakhs is released to the families of the deceased at the earliest and submit a report to the Court.” In respect of insurance amount to be paid to the family members of pourakarmika who was deputed at Covid care centre, the court said if the New India Assurance Company takes unreasonable time in releasing the amount, the State Government can move the court so that an appropriate direction can be issued to the company.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Story
